At Father Donald MacLellan Catholic Secondary School, we value parent and guardian engagement in their child's education. We believe the partnership between home, parish and school is vital to a student's success. We believe that good schools become better schools when there is a strong connection with the parent community. This can be achieved through volunteering through our Catholic School Council or Durham Catholic Parent Involvement Committee.
